At the Denver Art Museum, our local creative community includes some of our most inspirational collaborators. From Untitled: Creative Fusions, to our Creative-in-Residence program, to weekend demonstrations in the Studio, local artists are integral to DAM programs.
Because of COVID-19 health and safety requirements, our interactive Studio is currently closed and artist demos that used to happen in the Studio are moving online.
For many of our staff members, music can often be the key ingredient in getting the creative juices flowing. But we were curious: is the same true for artists?
We turned to one of our local favorites, Suzy Savoy, for answers and asked her what music has helped her to get into the creative mindset during quarantine.
Our Denver creative community is a vibrant source of inspiration and creativity—especially now. This week, we asked local artist Romelle to share what is keeping her inspired and sparking her creativity during this time. She says:
“My name is Romelle and I am an abstract painter based in RiNo, Denver. My studio essentials include anything that keeps me sane and I'm never short of vibrant colors to help bring my mood up. Lately, my routine has involved biking to the studio which acts as a sort of moving-meditation as I start the day.

Join us on Facebook and YouTube on May 15, 16, and 17 at 7 pm MST for the Denver Art Museum’s first Untitled: Creative Fusions at Home! This is the online version of the Untitled: Creative Fusions event that happens quarterly at the museum.
Jessica Loving grew up in the once sleepy mountain town of Conifer, Colorado. She spent much of her childhood being fortunate enough to experience extensive international travel with her family. This gift of ultimately, wanderlust, thoroughly enriched her being. Before the age of 20, she had already visited over 30 countries and seven continents.
Jessica studied Fine Art at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, from which she graduated in 2005. After moving back to Denver in 2006, she immediately became active within the art scene. She is a co-founder of Sync Gallery.
